For the first 2 months we lived in our apartment, that tiny little corner held nothing but a few boxes.  For the next 3 months, we brought in that gargantuan wood table (it’s from World Market) and regretted its existence every single day.  I mean, who buys an 8-person table when a) there’s only 2 of you, b) the space fits maybe a 2- to 4-person table, and c) it’s meant for a large farmhouse in Kansas?

Well, we did.  But, you guys, World Market was having this crazy dining table sale and that sale was about to expire.  So of course we had to buy it!  But enough about that gigantic hunk of wood.

In the middle of August, we bought 4 Herman Miller Eames chairs, and since they’re made to order and take several weeks to deliver, we just got them this weekend.  I can’t tell you how long we’ve been wanting these chairs.  I also can’t tell you how many Eames chairs I’ve pinned on pinterest in the last several months (a whole lot).  Moral of the story: we wanted them real bad.

And yes, we probably could’ve found some on eBay or settled for some fakies, but, full disclosure, my dad’s an interior architect and was able to get us a sweet deal.  You know how much I love sweet deals.

I can’t wait for dinnertime now!

*if you’re wondering why the table is smushed up against the wall, it’s because the entire frame of the first photo is how big the space is. yeah, we’re not the best table-pickers.
